Dear Dudley Primary Care Trust (PCT),

Under the F.O.I. Act please could you tell me which clinical systems are used by each of your GP practices i.e. which practices are using TPP SystmOne, which are using iSoft Synergy, which are using EMIS or which are using INPS Vision as their clinical systems.

I will not make the data public. I intend to inform them of a new, potentially integrated product to help improve patient care.

Yours faithfully,
